Write Up:

What an overwhelming celebration of my 1800th AOC event today - - recognition of something I do because I love it so much! Trena made an 1800 sign, Shirley cut huge foam numbers and made small signs, Sivlia's daughter (Carli) painted a beautiful rock for me, Dan R. and Linda C. made a "cool fan," and Tracy and Regina brought me flowers and a special bottle of one of my favorite drinks! For after the hike, Linda H. made cookies and brought cupcakes, Trena brought popsicles, and Dan. C. contributed a huge bowl of cut watermelon! It was an extravangant event, and I was really touched by the outpouring of so much love. I feel a bit odd to be thanked for what I do for my own happiness. I wouldn't have reached 1800 events if I didn't enjoy hiking with this group of people.

The hike itself was hot and humid today. Trena added a little distance to the hike, so we ended up going over 6 miles. The cool popsicles, watermelon, cupcakes and cookies really the spot when we returned to the parking lot. 

Thanks, everyone, for making today extra special for me! ~ Joyce
